My Indianapolis plastic surgery practice has seen all types of patients. But nothing compares to the amount of older patients I’ve seen walk into my office lately. In fact, this spike reflects the American Society of Plastic Surgeon’s statistic saying there was a two percent increase in patients over 55 last year. I can only imagine that it has increased again this year.
In Indianapolis, procedures like face lifts, neck lifts, brow lifts, and liposuction and treatments like Botox are just as popular with my younger patients as well as my gradually growing older patients. These clients have seen plastic surgery become accepted, and have finally willed themselves to not feel ashamed for wanting to look young. Plastic surgery is no longer taboo like it used to be, so older patients are ready to the take the plunge they’ve always wanted to.
Many of my Indianapolis plastic surgery patients over the age of 55 frequently mention how outspoken older celebrities have also helped them in embracing cosmetic procedures. They see how happy celebrities, such as Sharon Osbourne, openly admit to having work done, proud to have had help in looking the way they look. With society being so accepting, it’s only natural that more people, no matter their age, would consider cosmetic surgery.
In my opinion, you are never too old to want to look your best. If there are no serious risks for the patient, then there is no particular reason that a procedure should not be done. Wanting to look good is a universal feeling.
